OJW COURSE AND KIT

THE FUTURE IS HERE TODAY

 

January 9, 2011  I wrote an article for Everlook, an online health magazine, and it was Published: See article " Weight Control & Orthodontic Jaw Wiring"
 Orthodontic Jaw Wiring (OJW) Dental Professionals Join HealthCare Team  Read More>>>

Dear Fellow Professionals:

Take note...The Obesity epidemic in our country is described as follows (source US Dept. of Health and Human Services): Those with a BMI  of 25-29 ie "overweight" 34.2% or 69 million persons; BMI 30-34 ie "Obese" 19.5% or 39 million;  BMI 35-39 ie "Level II Obesity" 8.6% or 17 million;  BMI of 40+  is 5.7 million% or 11 million .

 

A flurry of calls from dental professionals has prompted me to announce:

 

Having provided OJW  over the course of a decade I can say that OJW is safe and effective.

 

Dental professionals interested in providing OJW   to patients in their office, clinic and city can call or email today for more information.

 

Those of you interested coming providers of OJW,  please contact me to obtain course and starter kit information. See below.

  

"What's stopping dentists from talking about obesity This is an article that appeared  in an online dental journal that I subscribe to:
entitled  DrBicuspid.com .   Here is an excerpt: "Dentists say they are interested in helping patients with serious weight issues, but at the same time they are afraid of offending them and appearing judgmental, Moreover, many more said if there was a connection between obesity and oral pathology they would be inclined to provide their expertise to the overweight and obese, according to a new study in the Journal of the American Dental Association  (Cover Story November 2010), Vol. 141:11, pp. 1307-1316). )  Click [HERE] To see the letter I sent to the Publisher/Editor.

 

Let there be light colleagues read on:

 

Jan 3. Potential Link Between Obesity And Periodontal Disease: "Is There a Prospective Association between Obesity and Periodontal Disease?",
by M. Jimenez et al., of the Harvard School of Public Health and the University of Puerto Rico, presented during the 87th General Session of the
International Association for Dental Research. Conclusion:
clear evidence of obesity occurring prior to periodontal disease, and support an association
between obesity and risk of periodontal disease. Given the high prevalence of obesity and periodontal disease, this association may be of
substantial public health importance. (Read article)

 

What this portends is that dental professionals now have the sanction of the ADA to provide services to the overweight-obese. I am proud to say that I have been doing just that for almost fifteen year now. My paper on this subject expounds on the work that I have been doing in this field. My research on the subject, the first of its kind, has clearly revealed that the public by and large recognizes and welcomes our expertise to assist them to regain control of their weight problems and the dire consequences that often accompanies them. 

 

Indeed, it is our right and responsibility to provide our expertise and treatment modalities. Please Read my paper:
